Amsterdam

My friend Ena went to Amsterdam a while ago and brought me this beautiful postcard!

Doesn’t it look beautiful?! I’m putting Amsterdam on my list of places I want to visit. Preferably during the summer time. :)

The Netherlands

After a long, long time I did a few trades through Postcrossing forum. I was really excited about these postcards cause I wasn’t sure what they would look like… and now that they’re here, I’m really happy to add some sweet cards from The Netherlands to my collection.

 

These three are from Amsterdam. I REALLY like the one with bikes! The next two are showing the traditional Dutch windmills. :)

UK + The Netherlands + Finland

I should’ve updated this blog a long time ago. :-/

So, I got this postcard from my pal Anu a while ago.

It’s showing the Wightwick Manor on the outskirts of Wolverhampton. I Googled it and this is what it says: “A late Victorian manor house, built in the Old English style by local industrialist Theodore Mander, Wightwick Manor is perhaps the best surviving example of a home furnished under the influence of the Arts & Crafts movement. The rich interiors feature many original wallpapers, fabrics and furnishings by William Morris, artwork by Rossetti and Burne-Jones, glass by Charles Kempe and ceramics by William de Morgan. The house sits in seven hectares (seventeen acres) of attractive Arts & Crafts gardens, designed by Thomas Mawson, which are Grade II listed in their own right.”

So, the next postcard is an official from The Netherlands (NL-384290), showing old local clothing.

The last one is an official from Finland (FI-849397) and I was so happy when I found it in my mailbox. It’s been one of my favorites for quite a while and I really appreciate Petra’s effort to look at my favorites section and to actually send me one!
